This match is our Super Rugby match of the weekend so if you are going to one only one match this weekend we suggest you watch this one.

The story behind this match is that Stormers coach Allister Coetzee was Brumbies coach Jake White's assistant when the Springboks won the world cup in 2007.

Due to the Super Rugby draw the Stormers missed out on playing the Brumbies last year so this will be the first time that White and Coetzee face each other in Super Rugby.

The Brumbies are the only unbeaten team left in Super Rugby but they are up against a team that won almost 90 % of their home matches last year.

Out of the last five matches between the Stormers and the Brumbies the Brumbies have won three.

The last match between the teams was in 2011 and the Stormers won 16-3 and that was their first victory in Canberra.

Overall the Stormers have played the Brumbies 14 times in Super Rugby since 1998 but the Cape side have only won three times or 21% of their matches.

Across all venues when the Stormers play the Brumbies the average score is Stormers 18 Brumbies 23.

This weekend the Stormers play the Brumbies at home in Cape Town where the teams have played each other 7 times.

Worryingly for the Stormers they have only won 29% of their home matches against the Brumbies as they have won just twice and the Brumbies have won four times. In 2006 there was a draw.

The average score when the Stormers play the Brumbies in Cape Town is Stormers 19 Brumbies 21.

Under Jake White the Brumbies have been a disciplined side and they will know not to give away penalties against the Stormers.

The Stormers won't have a South African referee this week either as Glen Jackson will be in charge of the match so they will most likely get fewer penalties and this year they have struggled to score tries.

The Brumbies are second on the try scoring table with 14 tries and the Stormers are 13th with four tries.

The Bookies have given the Brumbies a 2 point start for this Match - with an offer of a FREE $150 BET. We don't agree with the bookies on this one and we think it will go the other way. Brumbies to win by 3.

This Match will be shown on TV in NZ, Aus, SA and in the UK on Sky Sports 1 on the Red button as well as the website.

Average score: Stormers 18 Brumbies 23
